Beat is the UK’s eating disorder charity and is a champion, guide and friend to anyone affected by eating disorders, giving individuals experiencing an eating disorder and their loved ones a place where they feel listened to, supported and empowered.

Eating disorders are widely misunderstood and stigmatised illnesses, so Beat works to change this at every level. 

Beat campaigns for positive change for people who are suffering so that they can get the help they need and deserve as quickly as possible, because the faster they get treatment, the greater their chance of full recovery. Beat runs and assists with research to learn more about what causes eating disorders and how best to treat them.

Eating disorders can be deeply isolating for the people affected by them. Beat's message boards, online support groups, and regional support services allow people to talk to others with similar experiences, helping them to feel less alone with their eating disorder. Beat runs phone and email helplines 365 days a year for anyone who needs to get in touch.

Adult Helpline: 0808 801 0677 and Youthline: 0808 801 0711, both numbers are Freephone.

Seca 635 Wireless Platform & Bariatric Scales

Weighing range up to 300 kg

The battery operated digital scale Seca 635 has been especially developed for weighing adipose patients. With a capacity of up to 360 kg, it is a sturdy basis for heavyweight and corpulent (e.g. pregnant) patients.

Generous platform size

The low platform profile reduces patient effort and risk when stepping on the scale. As the 22 x 22 inch platform is almost twice as large as that of a normal scale, a chair may also be placed on the scale for weighing a patient. With the pre-TARE function, the weight of a chair or standing aid can simply be tared away. Up to 3 TARE weights (e.g. chair weights) can be stored.

Cable remote display shows fine graduation

The result is shown on the cable remote display in easy to read LCD numerals. The display can be mounted on a wall at eye level, placed on a table or on the optional mobile stand Seca 472. The 100 g graduation means that even the smallest changes in weight are registered – and, thanks to the auto-HOLD function, also after the patient has left the scale. The scale has an economy mode which means that it switches off automatically when it is in rechargeable battery operation.

Integrated BMI-function

Experts predict that, by the year 2040, half of the world population will have a BMI of over 30 kg/m2 which means obesity. Here the Seca 635 with its integrated Body Mass Index (BMI) function helps to evaluate the nutritional condition and makes early action possible.
